Eileen's Spicy Gingerbread Men
Excellent recipe! Based on other reviewers' suggestions, I added 1/4 cup of brown sugar (for flavor and to make the dough more solid), used 1/2 tsp cloves, and doubled the cinnamon and nutmeg (to give a stronger spice flavor). Like other reviewers, I recommend rolling out the dough between two sheets of parchment paper and chilling the scraps before re-rolling. Used colored royal icing (1 3/4c confectioner's sugar, 1/2 tsp lemon juice, 1 egg white beaten together till smooth) to decorate: this icing hardens well and won't crack when cookies are stacked.

Cannoli
The cannoli shells I made from this recipe were excellent! For want of a pasta mangle, I had to roll the dough out by hand. I can see how the crispiness would be improved if the shells had been thinner, but for the record, I was at least able to get the suggested number of shells (30). I would recommend a little cocoa powder, but otherwise the shell recipe was perfect. I made some modifications to the filling recipe: 1/2 tsp each of vanilla and almond extracts, a little citrus zest (as Lydia recommends in her review), and drained ricotta. (I put the ricotta on a coffee filter in a colander over a bowl, covered it with plastic wrap, and placed a bowl on top to press the liquid through. The whole apparatus sat in the fridge overnight.) I find this makes the filling less runny when it needs to sit out for some time, e.g. at the dessert table of a pot luck.

Chicken Marsala
This recipe tastes great and requires much less effort than other variations I've tried before. We made two chicken breasts, not four: we still used 2/3 cup of wine and a full cup of portabello mushrooms. Adding cornstarch and heavy cream as other reviewers suggested certainly improved the sauce's consistency. Also, we'll use less olive oil next time we make this recipe.
